SoHo Wallaby

It isn’t sufficient to seek wholeness through men, it never was and never will be for any woman, married or single.

I was trying to be a little looser with this wallaby.  But of course, you can’t be too loose on such a small piece of paper.  I did have a lot of fun with him tho.

    No. I think for a colorist you pushed your possibilities. I think it was the red under the wallaby that really caught my attention. I stared at it for the longest time. Now that I have experienced this I can’t think of any other color I’d want there.
